Speaking of this, has anybody used the comfort ventilation feature? I know it doesn't turn on the A/C, and it uses battery power, so you'd better drive the car for a while after using it. But it sounds useful. If I can set the timer to start at 4 pm, and come out at 4:30, open the windows, and get into a less-hot car, that'd be great.

I know it runs for 30 minutes -- or can you set an "off" time too? If not, can you interrupt it if you happen to come back early to the car?
